Sorry Troy,

Can't access your pictures.... get a generic Yahoo sign-in page, I enter my ID, then it takes me to an area where *I* may upload pictures.... [:0] Re-verify the URL....... speaking of pictures, I seem to recall saying I was going to post some last night.... oooops.

"Shoot low, Ed, I think their crawling!"

OK.....I guess its a FINE SCALE thing....cuz I can copy the address ovrer at a 'other' hobby message board I hang out at.

Try it now!Big Smile [:D]

I just bought a used car today so I have been busy....no further work has been done on the bench.

I think I got a good deal:

1988 Chev Corsica....the add said 800.00 I paid 600.00.....very GOOD condition! even the A.C. & all electrical works!, nice interior!
Just some faded paint and a whell bearing problem in the left front wheel......gulp....I hope.

Hey Troy,

Nice looking bench seat!!! Sure can tell you've been hard at it, can't wait to see this project come together!

Front wheel bearing, aye? Hmmm... if I were you, I'd just nip it in the bud and replace the Drive Axles. I don't know if you all have Advance Auto stores out there, but they offer trade-in on your old ones, so the final cost isn't that bad.

Just had the drive axles replaced on my '96 Toyota Camry last Spring, final cost was $112..... the first major repair job I've had to do on the old girl, who proudly displays 279,182 on the odometer!

Geezzz... look at the time! Sleepy [|)]
